Professional Statement:

Thank you for your interest in our practice. I have been a plastic surgeon for many years after having trained at New York Presbyterian Hospital of Weill Medical College of Columbia and Cornell, one of the best institutions in the country. I am certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons and the American Board Surgery. I love my profession and strive to deliver a personal and individualized care for each of my patients. When you come to our office you will find a friendly and warm staff who will listen to you and always try to help. We value our patients time and strive to be prompt on our apointments and avoid keeping you waiting for more than 15 minutes. My goal is to taylor a procedure which is wright for you and to give you a beautifull result. I will not offer you an operation or procedure unless I firmly believe that I can deliver a result that will make you happy.
